No One Should Get Sick While Trying to Get Better.
Putting an end to healthcare-ASSOCIATED infections (HAI's) is how it all began.
Unfortunately, nearly 100,000 people will die from healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) this year. That’s twice the number of people who die annually in car crashes, yet infection rates continue to grow at alarming rates. HAIs are infections that patients contract during the course of treatment and, despite increased global efforts to target them, disinfectant protocols in the healthcare industry have remained largely unchanged.
EMist was developed to help healthcare organizations reduce HAIs and improve patient outcomes while reducing costs. But, most importantly, EMist can help save lives. Studies have shown that less than 50% of environmental surfaces in patient care rooms are properly cleaned and disinfected. Evidence strongly suggests that cross contamination of microorganisms from environmental surfaces is directly related to patient infections. High-contact surfaces such as bed rails, bed surfaces, tables, fluid poles, doorknobs and supply carts have all been identified as having the greatest potential for pathogen transmission. Existing healthcare disinfection methods including wipes, spray and wipe, fogging, and UV lighting are largely ineffective and/or expensive.
EMist has proven to be an exceptionally powerful and cost effective alternative to traditional disinfection methods. Our electrostatic application technology comprehensively and efficiently applies the most advanced chemistries the world has to offer to exposed touch point surfaces, thus enabling the solution to meet its advertised performance claims.
Our EM360 system applies disinfectant solutions with its patented technology to environmental surfaces using electrostatic induction charging. The liquid droplets are positively charged by the spray system which is then driven to the surface target area in a consistent manner allowing for comprehensive uniform coverage. Simply put, our technology applies more evenly, clings to surfaces like a magnet, and reduces waste significantly. It is safe on sensitive equipment and treats areas untouched by traditional methodologies.
Since day one, it has been EMist’s mission to help in the fight against the unnecessary spread of sickness & infection. With the right combination of educated and trained cleaning professionals , the right processes, and the right products the risk of HAIs can be mitigated.
Clean. Health-E. Complete.
It is relatively simple: like charges repel and opposite charges attract. Thus, two positively charged (+ and +) or negatively charged (- and -) objects will repel each other.
